School Governors

School Governors

Welcome to the section of the website where you can find out more about the school’s Governors, and the work that we do.

Our main role is to support the Headteacher and the staff. We help them to set and reach targets and to strive for excellence across the whole spectrum of school life.

Our legal duties include:-

  • setting strategic direction, policies and objectives
  • approving the school budget
  • reviewing progress against the school’s budget and objectives
  • appointing, challenging and supporting the headteacher

The Governing Body meets at least once every term. We sometimes set up committees or working groups to look at particular issues such as pay, performance management, buildings development and Finance.

We are committed to providing an excellent environment for all pupils to enjoy during their time at our school.

Our Governing Body meetings are usually held after school. We attend training sessions and seminars to help us keep up to date with changes in schools and education and to help us do our job effectively. We also go into school to meet with the Headteacher, other members of staff and pupils to help us find out how the school is progressing towards its targets.

If you wish to contact the Governing Body, please contact the school for details.
